lyrics

How can you love me when you don’t know who I am?
These pages got a lot more filling from a
bloodstained, dirty hand.
All I know is I was blind
and the view looked mighty grand.
I been a white devil, a holy roller,
a Bokononist and a loner with a
temper and a cold shoulder.

I just keep wasting my time
again and again.
I been accused of a crime
I didn’t commit.

My baby loves me, gives me everything I need.
She’ll make a crown out of barbed wire
and I’m happy just to bleed.
She knows that I’ve been
trying hard to take my leave,
but she likes guns and she makes love
like a lioness, body like
poison in a sun dress.

Baby, I’m wasting my time
again and again.
I been accused of a crime,
but it’s all in the spin.

Well no one ever told me they would
hold me like a voodoo doll,
with their pins and needles they’re stabbin’ away.
Everybody told me I would be just fine
but it’s my time to drink that bitter wine.
Nobody loves you unless you get in line.

I won’t keep wasting my time
again and again.
I get so used to these crimes,
but it wears kinda thin.

I won’t keep wasting my time
again and again.
I never pay for the crime,
I just live with the sin.

I won’t keep wasting my time
again and again.
I just keep living like I do;
I keep it under my skin.

about

Matthew Ebel Seattle, Washington

I call myself a piano rocker, but I’m really just kind of a goofball. I’ve been playing the piano since age 5, discovered electronic music at 12, and made this stuff my career in '99. Since then I’ve played the Grand Ole Opry, been quoted in Rolling Stone, and made a name for myself in new media. I’ve been playing piano rock full-time since 2007 and since then I’ve never looked back. ... more
